6:32 am
high school will get advice from the man who led a school in paducah, kentucky in 1997 where a gunman killed three and injured five more. last night the parents turned out to help the process of evaluating the shooting and working toward preventing another shooting. they filled the school auditorium just days after robert gladden, jr, was charged with shooting and criticallily injuring ronald bowery. the principal describes the school security. he says two resource officers monitor about 400 students at a time and he may consider a third. the group shared ideas for over two hours with the promise of coming back to the table. now, some say they left with few answers, but they're committed to working with the staff to make the school a safer place. >> i've asked our folks to go back and look at all of our security protocols, all of our school crisis plans, our district crisis plans, i've also looked back to give them anti-bullying initiatives and getting the word out that we want people to bring messages to us. >> tell us what happened.
6:33 am
if i don't hear from him, he'll hear from me. >> now, meanwhile yesterday a grand jury indicted 15-year-old robert gladden, jr. on 29 counts relate today that perry hall shooting. >> the parents just said it, so many unanswered questions. so what does happen now? >>reporter: they still have a lot of work to do, megan. the principal and county superintendent plan to gather everyone everyone involved the day of that shooting. we could see changes in security. >> sher geojohnson reporting on that. this is a story that's not going away. >>reporter: exactly. another story this morning to talk about. expecting archbishop william lorrie to announce the first archdiocese capital campaign in 15 years. the goal is pretty big, to raise $100 million, also support parishes, schools and charitable outreach programs. the announcement takes place at 10:00 this morning. the new location of the archbishop border school in highlandtown. 15 years, that's how long it's been since the baltimore orioles were in the playoff hunt and this morning the team
6:34 am
is in toronto, but find themselves in unfamiliar territory, first place in the a.l. east. so charley is live down at camden yards this morning with more on the biggest story happening in baltimore right now. comarly. >>reporter: megan, good morning to you. you mentioned it, 15 years, that's how long it's been since the baltimore orioles they were in the playoffs, and they found themselves now in the thick of a playoff run that could take them playing all the way into october. the ballpark behind me is quiet now, it's going to remain that way through tomorrow. that's when the orioles take on the new york yankees, that's who they're tied with now in first place. a four-game series here at the yard and it is criticallily important for the orioles and playoff implications. and tickets? well, tickets are not going to be cheap for you. thursday's game is sold out completely. we've got tickets available on friday, limited availability saturday and sunday may be your best bet. we've been checking out the websites throughout the course of the morning here on "good morning maryland" and they vary in price.
6:35 am
standing-room-only, those tickets are going to run you $40, maybe $50 for thursday's game, but you want to get high dollar, you want to get expensive? they've got those two, some tickets being offered now for $800, even $1,000. so tomorrow night's game is sold out, so if you want to go there, megan, it's going to cost ya. >> yeah, i bet it is, charley, it sounds like it. but it would be fun to be there, no doubt about it. >>reporter: it is baseball season. >> you look like you're pretty happy reporting out there this morning. >>reporter: i'm having a good time, yeah. >> i know you are. check this out, charley, look at this, an elderly driver crashing into a swimming pool in massachusetts. a man staying at the house, he heard a crash, pulled the driver out of the water. that driver was taken to the hospital for treatment. right now investigators are looking into the cause of the crash, what happened and how that car ended up in the pool in the first place. well, another piece of video that you really have to see, a moose gone mad. this happened in vermont. a man went out of his house to find an animal with a hoof on his car.
6:36 am
so after shooing it away from his vehicle, he was kind of intrigued by the up close and personal encounter with the moose, so he grabbed his camcorder and walked around the yard. >> the moose was eyeing me. i thought it was kind of cute. >> yeah, not so much, though, because the moose's behavior went from cute to anything but. he charged at the man, you see him right there. brent olson ran for safety inside of his house, leaving that camcorder outside. turns out the moose had to actually be killed. apparently it showed signs of a parasite that causes odd behavior, so that might explain why he was in the yard doing that in the first place. pretty remarkable story about man's best friend, listen to this, if you have a dog, you're going to love this story, after being missing for several monthses, buckie decided he would make his way back to his owner and started walking. in january mark left buckie with his dad in west virginia because he couldn't have a dog at his new home in myrtle beach, south carolina. two weeks ago he was taken in by a family in south carolina after traveling nearly 500 miles. they took the animal to the
6:37 am
hospital where they discovered one of those microchips and they were able to call mark and tell him, hey, we have your dog. mark says that he'll never leave buckie behind again. how badly do you want to eat at a certain restaurant? well, enough to actually pay more for the reservations, because some places are charging more just for holding your seat. we're going to have more on this. there are some discountthey wor and who ate what and how much did it cost? there might be an easy solution to splitting the check. we're going to tell you about an app that could be available on your phone sometime soon. and a reminder as we head to break, katie couric's new show premiers next week, september 10th, right here on abc 2, starting at 4:00, followed by our news with jamie and kelly at 5:00 and 6:00. we'll be right back.
